These wonderful Papua New Guinean Coffee beans are sourced from family owned and run microlots in the Okapa region of the Eastern Highlands.
The majority of farmers in PNG grow their varietals in small gardens within their tribal villages, which have for centuries largely kept intact their individual languages and customs. Some of the trees which produce coffee in PNG are more than 25 years old, producing less fruited cherries, but also a higher sugar content than younger crops, which translates to a sweeter and more complex cup. The beans are grown at altitudes of 2000 meters in rich volcanic soils and receive around 2000mm of annual rain which encourages a year round harvest.
The result is coffee beans that are sweet with a well-balanced depth, full body and medium acidity. With tasting notes of fruit and chocolate, a hint of earthiness comes through in the finish, due to the soil in which they are grown. Enjoy them in a white or black coffee in any brewing style for a fantastic brew.
This mill in the Okapi region is called Namugo. This is a handpicked coffee by the mill owner and set aside to be sold at a premium. Coffees of this specialty are largely unheard of out of Papua New Guinea before now, so this is an exciting new direction for coffee being exported from the island.
